Howdy, my reading of the rules is that you need a tell tale, but it doesn't need to be the switch itself, I'm planning on a separate light from the switch myself so please me know if I'm wrong! Will be thinking of you on Friday for the test, and again on Saturday for your first outing (I hope).
Hi, well not too much to report really but a few things that very nearly caught me out, I had not checked the minimum height of the rear lights with a full tank of fuel, luckily I have adjustable shocks but these are shorter than the Mazda originals already so only just scrapped through there. The were not to keen on my wrap around harnesses so if you get a roll bar make sure you specify bolt ins, I very nearly failed here. And lastly an easy one the handbrake mech is all exempt apart from the top surface so a bit of trim needed. The examiner was very impressed with the strength and quality of the chassis and the car was getting a lot of interest, very happy and now looking forward to enjoying getting it in period trim. Cheers
